Where I've Been
On Monday afternoon we spontaneously decided to go to Indiana to help our son and daughter in law as a virus (not covid) was shared in a staggered fashion and surprisingly it was two different viruses. How is that possible?
Our grandson was fully recovered and as happy as can be. Our son was well until we left on Friday when he started a fever. Our daughter in law had the worst of it the whole time we were there. I did tons and tons of laundry, cleaning and cooking. My husband trimmed hedges and installed five smoke alarms in their purchased home.
Since we live near a BIG city we were unable to board Frodo at the kennel (I miss living in the country, I never had that problem) so we packed up Frodo and brought him with us. He did surprisingly well! He acted like he loved the adventure. He's not a fan of riding in a car but if he sits on my lap for SEVEN hours straight he manages his dismay.
Let's just say I did not knit, draw, paint or do anything creative, unless you count cooking homemade chicken noodle soup.
I did walk daily especially on a trail at a nearby park where they live. I did baby snuggles, baby bouncing and of course making our grandson laugh.
We are exhausted now that we are home and fingers are crossed we do not come down with any virus!
Oh my, you have been busy. I hope you and your husband stays healthy. My daughter's dog doesn't enjoy car rides either, but will stay sitting on her bed in the back seat. She will not sleep though. Have a great week.ReplyDelete
Oh bless you! I understand how much you helped in time of sickness! May you and your Husband stay well!ReplyDelete
What a great 'excuse' to see the grand baby lol. Hopefully all the Indiana peeps are back to normal and also hope neither of you become ill. I, also, have one dog who does not enjoy car rides, no matter where he sits. Whines, cries and shakes the whole time. Yet our other dog loves to ride.ReplyDelete
Wow, that is so great that you were able to go and help your son and his family out! I know you enjoyed time with that sweet grandson. So glad Frodo did OK on the trip. Glad you are back safely. Hope you both stay healthy! See you again soon!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful thing for you to do! Bless your heart! I know how much help that was to your son and his family. And baby snuggles too! Stay cozy and healthy!ReplyDelete
How nice you were able to go and help out your son and family. I bet you are tired now that you are back home. I hope you both stay healthy.ReplyDelete
I was the anonymous comment. Not sure how that happened but here I am.ReplyDelete
Welcome Home! So nice that you could help out - I'm sure that was very much appreciated. And, of course, baby snuggles help all the time. Hope everyone is on the mend now and can stay healthy. Also you and your husband. Take care and rest up!ReplyDelete
You and your husband may be tired, but I'm sure your son and his family greatly appreciate all the help. It's been decades, but I still remember how bad I felt when I had the flu, my oldest was six months old, and my husband was traveling. Help is indeed a godsend. Rest up and get back to some creative pursuits! (Sending good thoughts that you both stay healthy!)ReplyDelete
I'll send wishes for good health for everyone and no more viruses. I'm sure your family appreciated the help.ReplyDelete
So good you could help and have some quality time with your family. Love the stroller photo!ReplyDelete
Fingers crossed you both stay healthy! But what a blessing to be able to go and help! (And Frodo too!)ReplyDelete
How cool to be able to do that! I know your son and daughter-in-law are extremely grateful you could help ... and just think of the stories you'll be able to share with your grandson about how you "saved" the day when his parents got sick!ReplyDelete
Wow, you are amazing Karen. I bet your daughter in law and son were so grateful for your help. I hope Frodo is ok after his long journey!ReplyDelete
